Thanks so much for coming by and leaving comments!  I have the best readers.  I'm so happy to say too that I have almost doubled my page views in the last 6 months! I have been very blessed!

In case you just started following me or maybe you missed a post here or there here are my top 10 posts for 2016. I had so much fun writing #1!  It's all true.  


1.  We all have messy houses at some point.  It usually happens to me right when company is coming over.   So if you are anything like me here are some tips to get your house clean fast!

2.  Sometimes I just don't know why a frugal list is more popular than others.  I think it was my canning shelf.   It's just a steel shelf that I trimmed with lace I had bought at a garage sale.

4.  Wouldn't you know it when I decide to reuse a picture it comes up in the top 10 too!  I think this made it to the list because of my title.  Many people thought we would stop gardening!   That didn't happen...read on!

5. This past summer was hot and dry!   The garden just curled up and died in spots, no matter how much water I gave it.  It was amazing that we still had a pretty good harvest (no the snake isn't real).   I am happy that I have some vegetables canned from last year too!

10.   Wanting to help charities more this year I had high hopes of finding money.  I also found that I'm not very good at that. I added to the donation.
